LATEST NEWS REGARDING 2018/2019 EVENTS
POST FROM THE ORGANISERS
2018 EVENT UPDATE: The organising team have been on the blower to Michael Eavis last night for advice. After much deliberation it has been decided that the Scarcliffe Soapbox Derby is going to do a ‘Glasto’ and have a year out, then we will be back with a bang in June 2019…
HOWEVER this does NOT mean the organising team won’t be busy in 2018. Aaron D Firth is currently cooking up the master plan for a smaller community event in June 2018. Currently this is looking like only one wheel will be required, and everyone will race UP the hill!!!
This new event is going to give all the organisers, supporters and sponsors a year off from the hectic organisation that goes off in the background for the Soapbox Derby, and be fresh for an even better event in 2019.
Please keep following our Facebook page and website for more event announcements that will be released very soon...
We really look forward meeting you all again, having you involved and in the words of Arnie Schwarzenegger ‘we’ll be back’…
Many thanks from the Soapbox organising team
We would like to thank everyone who sponsored, helped with, took part in & entered the Scarcliffe Soapbox Derby 2015, 2016 & 2017 event. Without everyone, this event would never be the success it has become. All three events have raised over £28,000.00 for Ashgate Hospice & CLIC Sargent – this is something we are extremely proud of and the whole reason our small dedicated team set about launching this great family day out.
We had this great comment sent to us over email after last year's event, showing its really worth your time coming along for the day:
WOW !! What an awesome event for most worthy causes.... My compliments.
